POV Hackathon seeks filmmakers, designers & developers

A few weeks ago we told you about the first POV hackathon in this post and some of the amazing prototypes that emerged out of it, as well as the brilliant documentation of the event by Rahul Chadha.

And now they’re at it again and looking for participants for the POV Hackathon 2!  Ten teams of filmmakers and technologists will converge for a January weekend in New York City to create prototypes that seek to reinvent the documentary for the web.

The application deadline for filmmakers, developers and designers is December 7, 2012. There is no fee to apply or participate so if you think this is for you, send off your application as soon as possible!

More information is on POV’s hackathon site at http://www.pbs.org/pov/hackathon/


The i-Docs site runs on a community model, we always want to hear about new projects, events, research, online resources and anything else related to the field of interactive documentary, feel free to email us at idocsinteractive@gmail.com or join our Facebook group -

we look forward to hearing from you!
